We're super excited for Mr. Ocean getting his due after one of the hottest albums of the year, Channel Orange...and one of the best come-ups we've seen in a while.  A few of his nods--Album of the Year, Record of The Year/"Thinkin' Bout You", Best New Artist, Best Collabo with Kanye & Jay for "No Church In The Wild", and Best Urban Contemporary Album.

Kanye & Jay are still making waves as the Throne including nods for Best Rap Performance & Best Rap Song for "Ni**as In Paris", and 'Ye copped Best Rap Song & Best Collabo nods for "Mercy".  Jay copped Best Rap Performance with Andre 3000 & Jeezy for "I Do."

Rihanna is looking to add 3 more Grammy's to her stash of 5.  She's nominated alongside her mentor Jay-Z for Best Rap Collabo for "Talk That Talk."  She also nabbed Best Pop Solo Performance (“Where Have You Been”) and Best Short Form Music Video (“We Found Love”).

Taylor needs to take off that

Taylor needs to take off that dry dead ass wig off, and I didn't know if you came out the closet you could get nominated for a grammy because of controversy. *cough* Frank Ocean. Dude can't even sing. I'm glad they didn't give Nicki a grammy, that would be the last thing that chick would need going to her head. Congrats Nasty Nas!
